Should a Christian have hobbies? We tackle an honest question from a long-time listener. Luke writes, “I’ve been struggling with this concept for years. What is the biblical perspective of hobbies? I’m an avid weightlifter and bodybuilder and love to spend time working out.” But he wonders if all that time he spends in the gym pleases God. How would you answer his question? Don’t miss Chris Fabry Live!
